I don't know where or by whom this photo was taken. It was emailed to me by a friend who also received it from a friend. All of this in an effort to identify this bird. Attached File  big bird.jpg   253.56KB   75 downloads

"The ultimate value in these marshes is wildness, and the crane is wildness incarnate. But conservation of wildness is self-defeating, for to cherish we must see and fondle, and when enough have seen and fondled, there is no wilderness left to cherish." - Aldo Leopold
